2nd Amendment - What Does it REALLY Mean?

Here's the exact wording of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution: "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
Question: Where is this "militia"? Is that our military? Or a citizen's militia? Weren't the Black Panthers a "militia"? 

They were exercising their rights - right?  Looks like a militia to me.  

Or does this refer to a possible militia in future?
I just have so many questions. We have friends who own AK-15s. One is a 80-yr-old lady. I asked why she owns the firearm. She said that it is "fun" to shoot. 

So, is that why these things are allowed? Because they're 'fun'? Don't take my fun away - no matter how many innocent lives are taken by these assault weapons? I think the Amendment has been misinterpreted all along.

So, who decides when we bring arms to the collective "Well Armed Militia" table? Who will we be fighting? Ourselves (again?!?!?) And will it indeed be "well-regulated?" What will we be fighting about?  Taking away the arms we will be fighting each other with?  When does it ever end?
